The Best Value for Money SUV in 2021 - The Mitsubishi ASX

29 July 2021

Kiwis have had a long running relationship with SUVs. Our beautiful country was built on a foundation of country living, and New Zealanders' appetite for UTEs and SUVs are a reflection of our rural past (and present!). We can’t help but love the practicality of having a vehicle that handles well, provides plenty of space, and makes us feel safe and secure when we drive it. Whether that drive is for an adventure to one of our country’s beautiful beaches or simply to get the groceries home after popping to the shops, for many, an SUV just makes sense.

But Kiwi’s everyday driving experience has definitely changed over the decades. Many people no longer find themselves living rurally, but rather inhabit urban, metropolitan areas and sprawling suburbs. The need for bigger SUVs has not only diminished, but can also be a hindrance when it comes to trying to squeeze down narrow roads and parallel parking on busy city streets. But there’s no need to throw the baby out with the bath water, SUVs are still a class of vehicle that offers many advantages, even in populated urban areas. A compact SUV offers all the advantages of their bigger counterparts, but reimagined to suit the needs of those who occupy our evolving cityscapes. It comes as no surprise then that compact SUVs have become the most popular segment in the New Zealand market.

In this highly popular market segment, it is hard to fault the value of  buying a new Mitsubishi ASX in 2021. At its highly competitive price point starting at $27,990 + delivery costs, it could be mistaken that the Mitsubishi ASX is a “bare bones offering”.. . but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The Mitsubishi ASX is packed with features that rival its pricier contemporaries.


Stylish New look, Zippy Performance and Fuel Efficient

The Mitsubishi ASX has taken everything that made the previous model so popular and elevated it. Sporting a fresh, stylish new look, the high quality driving experience of the Mitsubishi ASX makes even the smallest trip something to look forward to. The 2.0L or 2.4L (VRX Model) DOHC MIVEC petrol engine with 6 speed automatic with sports mode combined with the compact size of the car provides an incredible driving experience. Tight, responsive handling more akin to a sedan, with all the practicality of the safety and space of an SUV… all while providing a fuel efficiency of 7.6L/100km for the 2.0L and 7.9L/100km for the 2.4L model.


Safety And Comfort in One Compact Package

The Mitsubishi ASX makes keeping you and your family safe a top priority. All models of the Mitsubishi ASX feature 7 air bags, active stability control, electronic brake force distribution and active road handling systems. Both the VRX and XLS models offer a range of safety features that would normally come at a premium for other SUVs, including Forward Collision Mitigation, Blind Spot Warning System and Lane Departure Warning. 

The 8” touch screen audio display with reversing camera is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Seamlessly connect your phone to the Smartphone link for hands free Bluetooth functionality that can be controlled from both the steering wheel and through voice activation. So whether you’re looking to stay entertained listening to your favorite playlist or podcast or need to make an important phone call while commuting, the Mitsubishi ASX makes sure that you can do so safely and without any hassle.
